How can we describe the preamplifier MPP 1000 when qualifiers are too weak?
The story of the origin 1000 Series Is in fact its best citation. The excerpt below is from Advance Acoustic about the origins of the 1000 Series.
In order to design the whole range of Advance Acoustic products, our laboratory is of course equipped with measuring devices and other high-quality software, which assist us in the development of our products. However to improve the final product, we also use a reference system, which enables us to carry out numerous comparative tests on various types of music. This working method is stricter, and allows us to guarantee a family resemblance that you find in all our products.
We have designed this system, the true reference system of our laboratory, without any compromise, we put no limits to its manufacturing costs. No obstacle was prohibitive. We were simply guided, as a top sportsman would be, by personal motivation, to want to surpass himself, to want to exceed his own limits.
During a meeting in our offices, at Brie-Comte-Robert, we approached a burning subject which we had at heart: what product could we design which would be more than a showcase of our expertise? Which product would be so much better, than it would be indisputably acknowledged in the world of High Fidelity? It was decided that we would produce a limited edition of our reference system and so the 1000 Series was born.
